SD Opening weekend pics...

12 posts in this topic

Found a great field this week and had some good luck this morning. The geese decoyed great. A 30 goose limit by 8:30 and still had time to video a few more flocks coming in! Good time was had by all.

Day two was much slower. We finally got our 3 man limit around 2:00. I think the fog and wind kept the birds on the water longer. Sorry about the bad pic, I tried to prop the camera on a decoy...

Nice work Rost, thats the way to do it. I guess I have heard mixed reports from the south opener from the few people I have heard from. I took the weekend off myself and got into some minnesota birds, sounded like it was a madhouse over the weekend.

Yes, I have heard mixed reports as well. Hopefully the birds settle down this week again. They got pressured real hard on the opener. While scouting on Sat night, I saw birds in fields that the were not in previous nights. None of them were feeding either. Heads were sky high, they didn't know what hit'um.

Flick-I lookin forward to seeing some of your pics. You always pull through with some good ones.

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
